Chanel's Haute Couture extravaganza gets the documentary treatment in Netflix's 7 Days Out

The making of a magical moment

Text: Ryan Sng


Haute Couture has long been fashion's most mysterious and venerated tradition, and few names are as strongly associated with it as Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld; the French house's immersive, jaw-dropping sets always make for a fascinating contrast with the delicate handiwork of its ateliers. In director Andrew Rossi's 7 Days Out documentary series — now on Netflix — we get to appreciate every detail, as the man who brought us Met Gala doco The First Monday in May unpacks the staging behind Chanel's garden-inspired Haute Couture show of SS18. From set designers painting (and re-painting) garden trellises to look authentically weathered, to petite mains racing against the clock during last-minute fittings, this 45-minute sugar rush is a definite must-watch.
